Health screening for the over-40s

Dr Hannah Farrimond considers the issues surrounding government plans to screen the over-40s. Health Secretary Alan Johnson has been outlining in greater detail the government’s plans to offer health screening for the over-40s, first announced by the prime minister in January. Pilots will be carried out this autumn, and a full roll-out will begin next year. Egenis Research Fellow Dr Hannah Farrimond is concerned that the roll-out has been announced before the pilot study has been carried out.
